Pupil Achievement at Key Stage 2

22 December 2017

Pupil Achievement data at Key Stage 2 for the Academic Year 2016-17 is now available on Northamptonshire Analysis within the KS2 Achievement Dataview. This is the second year of the DfE's new Key Stage 2 framework, so begins to give us some trend data. The achievement data is available by characteristics of pupils and highlights achievement gaps between those pupils with the key characteristics and their peer group without (that chacteristic).   Additionally this data is aggregated to the Analytical Geotypes, so splits by Deprived : Not Deprived and Urban : Rural can be accessed via the dataview.

Also available is the School Standards data at County level and above.

Some interesting snippets from the data include :
.....   The number of schools in Northamptonshire failing to meet the KS2 Floor Standard, dropped from 11 to 9 in 2016-17. This equated to 5.5% of schools compared to 3.8% across England as a whole.   Additionally, 9.5% of Northamptonshire schools were deemed to be coasting in 2016-17 (19 schools) a much higher proportion than the England average of 3.8%.
